so it's a great phone, but is it a 'fashion' phone?

I haven't very frequently seen the iPhone lauded (or derided) as the latest hot (or obnoxious) fashion accessory, a la the LG Prada phone. And the iPhone users I've spotted so far seem decidedly non-fashion oriented -- mostly disheveled looking salarymen and IT geeks who wear it around their necks on lanyards... (But then again I work in midtown Manhattan, so my sample set is probably more uniform(ed) than the broader iPhoned populace.)

Considering that Apple's industrial design is almost universally considered uber-sexy, I'm surprised more fashion conscious consumers haven't flocked to it. What say you, iPhoners? Was your decision to purchase at all influenced by how it would complement your wardrobes, among other considerations?

By the way, I absolutely did not post this to insult or belittle anyone who doesn't prioritize fashion. Just curious.

Most definitely it's a fashion phone, but not as much as the RAZR was when it came out in '04. This phone runs circles around the RAZR for functionality. It's fashion only because every celebrity on television will have one soon.

iPhone is more of a 'hip' than a fashion phone. If Marc Jacobs for LV or Miucca Prada starts designing cases for iPhone, it will become a fashion phone. I hope the later is more of a possibility than a probabability.
